Yousef Bin Ahmed Aluthaimin, the Secretary General of The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has denounced the passing of a new law by the Israeli Kenesset, which legalizes settlement outposts in the West Bank.
Aluthaimin issued a press statement that assured that “[Israel’s] unprecedented move aims at strengthening Israel’s occupation, colonization and land confiscation.”
The statement noted that the Israeli moves are null and void under international law and gravely violate the UN-related resolutions.

(Translation: OIC denounces Israel’s legalisation of settlement outposts and calls for immediate action at UN’s security council).
Aluthaimin asserted that this Israeli law “Confirms that Israel, as an occupying power, is going on with implementing its policies to end any possibility for reaching a two-state solution, and hinders international moves and efforts made by active international actors to end the occupation of the Palestinian Territories, and to reach a just peace.”
Aluthaimin also denounced Israel’s continuing raids against Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, urging the international community to adopt a resolution that denounces such Israeli moves.
The Israeli Kenesset has passed a law two days ago that legalizes Jewish settlement outposts in the occupied West Bank. The move was received by Palestinian anger and international silence.
